    There's nothing Najlaa Asia would rather do.

    Hello everybody!

    Checking a bus engine is an unusual start to the day for a woman in the West Bank.

    There's nothing Najlaa Asia would rather do. She's the first woman licensed to drive public buses in the Palestinian city of Tulkarm.

    Being a pioneer isn't easy. She had to pass 12 driving tests. But Najlaa encourages other Palestinian women to break with taboo, and compete on an equal footing with men in all professions.

    Does the sentence "But there's nothing Najlaa Asia would rather do" mean "Najlaa Asia puts driving public buses above/ahead of anything else" or "Najlaa Asia prefers driving public buses to/over anything else" or "Najlaa Asia likes driving public buses best of all"?

    Thank you.

    Re: There's nothing Najlaa Asia would rather do.

    "Najlaa Asia prefers driving public buses to anything else" comes close to it.
